Some new housemates of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show managed to cause a stir on social media shortly after the launch and one such housemate is Tochi.
The tall and fair individual had joined other housemates to participate in a get-to-know-you session, where they all get to share some basic information about themselves and their preferences in the opposite gender.
Tochi’s turn was going fine until it got to the point where he had to talk about what he likes in a potential partner that could be his lover.
The BBNaija housemate started off by expressing his interest in a fellow guy. Upon uttering the statement, the house was instantly set abuzz as many found the slip of tongue hilarious.
However, Tochi was quick to correct himself and make it clear that he is interested in women and not men like himself.
